People schmoozed with all 7 of the local organizations that we helped last year. The celebration included activities for all ages in the areas of food insecurity, housing, and racial justice.
One popular spot was the Privilege Bead activity, where people answered questions about their privilege and took home a necklace reminding them of their answers.
Another hot spot was Color Me Mine bowl painting. 38 beautiful bowls were decorated and donated to Robbinsdale's "Empty Bowls" event at Cooper High School, where on March 6th they will be available for purchase from 4-7 pm. All proceeds will go to food shelves PRISM and NEAR.
Both kids and adults took seriously the challenge to sort foods into healthy and not-so-healthy piles, and planned a meal/budget expenses with limited funds. Even lunch provided food for thought, as it included items that can often be found at food shelves.
Our first year of Giving Circle allowed us to give generous checks to all 3 food shelves—PRISM, STEP and ICA.
You can help us do even more this year by joining the Giving Circle. Send a $36.00 check to the Adath main office, ATTN: Hesed in the Memo, or volunteer 3 hours at any combination of PRISM, STEP, ICA or Our Saviour’s Shelter.
Save the date for future events in March for MN Food Share month, and again for the 2nd Annual Giving Circle celebration this coming October, 2018.
